, medicare and otherwise, being asked to pay for that additional -- setting aside something that unionized workers will not have to face for an additional five years? >> i think some of the revenue questions are obviously part of the discussions that are ongoing. the president has made a commitment that he will keep to ensure that this legislation is fully paid for. again, it is something that is a little different that is going on in washington these days. this is a proposal that will be scored and it will be rendered a judgment as to the fact that the president will pay for every ççdime in this bill. the compensated for in taxes for additional medicare savings? >> again, i think some of the discussions are ongoing. >> on healthcare, the last month or six weeks you all have proceeded with no republican support, no republican negotiations as far as anyone can tell, 60-40 votes. and it looked like you were on the glide path to passing it in the senate's with democratic- only boats. you now faced the prospect in çmassachusettsç of possibly needing a republican vote. is there some reg
, what are entitlements? medicare, social security, veterans benefits, things that cannot be controlled that if you're entitled to them, you get them. and you look at interest on the debt is what -- is 5%. if you look at discretionary defense, it's 18%. and if you look at everything else the federal government does that everybody talks about: education, agriculture, justice, education, the 22 departments in homeland security, it is just 16% of what is spent. so if you add together the 50% and the 5% of interest, you see 55% of everything the federal government spends this year cannot -- cannot be controlled. you have to spend it. and so all the rest that's discretionary is rather small in comparison. if you project that out ten years -- and i must tell you, new numbers are coming out tomorrow, so this is the latest number that i have -- entitlements go up to 56% and interest on the debt to 14%. so that is 70% of everything that is spent in the year 2019 if things are projected forward cannot be controlled. discretionary defense is 16% and nondiscretionary -- again, everything else -- 14

like social security and medicare. but it was a proposal that both republicans and democrats, i hoped, would like enough to move forward. the spending problem we have, mr. president, is like a cancer, and this chamber refuses to seek any treatment. and while i did not like the proposal completely, i at least supported it because i knew we needed to do something. our spending is out of control. we have a $12 trillion debt. the deficit of last year was was $1.4 trillion, more than the past four years in the bush administration combined. now, i am new to this chamber, so the bizarre still seems bizarre to me, and perhaps the longer you're here, bizarre starts to seem normal. but we cannot spend more than we take in. we cannot continue to amass a debt that our children are going to have to pay for. right now, we have to go borrow money from countries like china because we can no longer raid social security and medicare because those programs now need those dollars to be paid out. but at some point, this country is going to have to pay the piper. at some point, we're going to have to drama

reforms. we're going to lower the cost of medicare and medicaid, and it won't cost anybody anything. that is great politics. it's just not true. >> was the president right, there's no free lunch in health care? >> well, look, of course, there are all kinds of choices to be made in the development of public policy. but i think i remember that moment, i was a few feet away from the president at the time, i think he was talking to congressman tom price, he alluded to our solutions, our better solutions handbook that we handed out today available at gop.gov if you want to look through it, and i think he thought our proposals were just the summary references on the page of the better solutions book. and tom price of georgia and myself went on to say, no, we have substantive, detailed bills that were filed in the congress, that were summarily excluded from consideration by your party on capitol hill. and the president, from where i'm sitting, acknowledged that. he said he had made the hard choices. we made the hard choices, too. you can look them up in our legislation. you know, all we've
for it? referring to medicaid for nebraska and medicare advantage for florida and others? ben nelson who got that original thing, charles, backed off today and asked senator reid to pull it back and give it to everybody. >> he got heckled and his own state i think in a restaurant over the weekend. here is a guy who brings home a particular exemption on behalf of his own home state and the people are so embarrassed at home by this corrupt deal, that they oppose the deal which actually helps them. it tells you how disgusted people are with the process. it isn't only that it's been done in secret. it's that it's been one trade of a favor after another. ostensibly on behalf of a great objective, insuring the uninsured and people can smell this is all about politics and not about helping americans. that's why i think this is a referendum on healthcare. and why obama is going to be in massachusetts, because he knows if the race is lost, it's not just that he's not going to get 60 in the senate. it's that a lot of moderates in house and senate will run away understanding that their seats are lo

middle-age because the pattern of the war. most are going to qualify for medicare any way. the va has excess capacity. soon it's going to have a lot more excess capacity. it is less the world war ii generation and the korean war passalong. it's also been a winning for a decade now has literally offering the best care anywhere on metrics ranging from patient satisfaction to the use of information technology, evidence based medicine. anybody remotely acquainted with the quality of literature on health care the last decade would know the va has the best care anywhere. also, although it is hard to get a card number it appears the cost per patient as compared to medicare is about two-thirds. so this is a triple winner. open up the va to the vets who can use the medicare entitlement not only that, open it up to their wives, let them buy into the system. this now makes clinical sense but 8-year-old veteran scott more bdy with their wife, they have to take care of their tether to the coverage of the buttocks sense because every person of medicare and to the va you have saved about one third a

the senate bill is still a government-run takeover of health care. it still robs medicare of about a half trillion dollars, and this one, unlike the health bill in the house, forces taxpayers to pay for the killing of unborn children and that is not health care and the american people overwhelmingly reject it. but it seems nancy pelosi and harry reid are hell bent on shoving this government-run health care system down the american people's throat. i can only say to you that if they keep it up, the american people may turn this whole administration and the democrat majority into one giant shovel ready project next fall. >> i want to talk about -- i want to give you a chance to respond to the abortion restrictions because harry reid sacrificed the public option to keep senator joe lieberman on board and tightened the abortion restrictions to reel in ben nelson on the abortion federally funded abortion measure. that's still not making republicans happy. is there any room here for negotiation? >> let me take a moment out and first say that this house bill that we passed is not government run.
marketplace. we want a system where seniors don't have huge gaps in their medicare prescription drug coverage. and where medicare itself is on a sound financial footing. those are the things that we're fighting for. and i'm not going to stop on that, because it's the right thing to do. and by the way, if you are serious about reducing our deficit and debt, you cannot accomplish it without reforming our health care system, because that's what's gobbling up more federal dollars than anything else. i don't understand folks who say they don't want to see government spending out of control and then are fighting reforms that the congressional budget office says would cut $1 trillion off our deficit over the next two decades. those aren't my numbers. we're never going to stop fighting to cut waste and abuse. we have had deficits that have been accumulating for too long. families across the country are tightening their belt and making tough decisions. it's time for the federal government to do the same. and that's why i proposed specific steps last night to bring the deficit down. and i'm grateful th
